1 Introduction Haudricourt’s (1954b) hypothesis of Vietnamese tonogenesis was that Vietnamese tones could be shown to be associated with former final consonants: in native Vietnamese vocabulary, Proto-Austroasiatic final fricatives *-s/*-h correspond to the Vietnamese hỏi and ngã

. Tonogenesis as described by Andre G. Haudricourt can be represented by using a limited set of distinctive laryngeal features. These binary and articulatory distinctive features, combined with a phonological representation inspired by feature geometry, allow us to propose a simple model for tonogenesis and

briefly introduce (1) previous claims on tonogenesis in Tibetan; (2) Zhouqu County’s geographical and cultural position; and (3) Zhouqu County’s linguistic situation. Subsection 1.1 deals with a basis of the analysis of the present paper. The latter two subsections point out the difference between the

In A Phonological Reconstruction of Proto-Hlai, Norquest presents a reconstruction of Proto-Hlai based on data from twelve Hlai languages spoken on Hainan, China. This reconstruction includes chapters on both the Proto-Hlai initials and rimes, and original sesquisyllabic forms are shown to be necessary to account for the reflexes between the daughter languages. A comparison is made between Proto-Hlai and Proto-Tai, and a preliminary reconstruction of Proto Southern Kra-Dai (the immediate ancestor of Proto-Hlai) is performed. When this is compared with Proto-Hlai, it is shown that several important sound changes occurred between Pre-Hlai and Proto-Hlai. The aberrant Jiamao language is also examined, focusing on its complex contact relationships with other Hlai languages.

) Austronesian reconstruction, which does not distinguish between *H 1 and *H 2 . As a result, Ostapirat’s observations on tones B and C are limited. Had he relied on Blust’s or Wolff’s instead, he would not have been more successful. Kra-Dai tonogenesis cannot be understood outside of Tsuchida’s distinction

Distinctive rising and falling tone movements in Slavic and East Baltic originated from retractions of the stress in these languages. These developments were independent from the gradual loss of glottalization which gave rise to new tonal distinctions at more recent stages. Several contributions to the present volume are reconsidered against this background. Original glottalization was preserved in the Russian dialect of Common Slavic at the time of the earliest borrowings into Latvian.

The larger part of the present volume is about Slavic historical linguistics while the second part is about more general issues and methodological aspects. The initial chapters contain a revision of the author’s Slavic Accentuation and a discussion of the Slovene evidence for the Late Proto-Slavic accentual system and of the Kiev Leaflets. These are complemented by an extensive review of Garde’s theory and an introductory article about the work of earlier authors for those who are unfamiliar with the subject. Then follows a discussion of changes in the vowel system, Bulgarian developments, final syllables in Slavic, early changes in the consonant system, and of Halle and Kiparsky’s review of Garde’s book. This results in a relative chronology of 70 stages from Proto-Indo-European to Slavic. The following chapters deal with the progressive palatalization, the accentuation of West and South Slavic languages, various aspects of the Old Slovene manuscripts, the chronology of nominal paradigms, and other issues under discussion in recent publications. The second part of the present volume contains a number of case studies exemplifying specific theoretical problems, most of them of a semantic nature. The synchronic studies deal with Russian and Japanese syntax and semantics, the diachronic studies with tonogenesis in different languages and with semantic reconstruction in Altaic and Chinese.
